Alice Peyton, daughter of Robert and Ann (Rush) Peyton,was born after 1764 in Virginia. She married George Noland, probably in Virginia, before 1785, when they witnessed her father's will.
The Elsey Jane Billingslea buried in the Batchelor-Noland Cemetery & referred to as the mother of Pearce Noland was probably Walter's wife Alice (Walter Billingslea was guardian of George's children and records show Walter and Alice Billingslea prior to 1800, when George died). The Noland family had always assumed that George's widow, Alice (Peyton) had married Walter after George's death, but she may have preceded George in death.
Mary Gregg, posting in the Peyton Forum, cites a will by Robert Peyton, with a wife named Ann:
Both Alec and Elsy are nicknames for Alice.
